for corruption and sentencing deserved that spot. for number three penn state's jerry sandusky, and american student in italy amanda knox also at number three. first why didn't you put sandusky on your list? >> well, you know what, if cases were based on allegations, then casey anthony would have been convicted. i think the jerry sandusky case is an important case and it's opening up a lot of observation and concern about what goes on in campuses and college campuses and high school. but the bottom line is at this point we have some very outrageous allegations. let's see what happens in 2012. may make the top ten of 2012. right now it's absolutely too early to put on the list. >> but amanda knox instead? >> oh, yeah. >> what stood out for you on that? >> amanda knox i think is very, very important. we read 143-page what's called a motivation by appeals judge and demonstrated unlike american courts how perverted some judicial systems are in terms of safeguards. safeguards meaning the right to cross-examination, the right against self-incrimination. the good news is that the italian appeals co
